Clip and Trip

5.11a/b, Trad, 95 ft,  Avg: 3.2 from 6 votes
FA: Robyn, Shannon and Rob, 1985
Tennessee > Tennessee Wall > T-Wall East

Description

Climb an arching flared corner to an over-lap. Step up and right. Load up gear and blast off on thin holds with balancy moves. Find another stance and load up again before repeating and gunning for the cave. You can find a couple of key, quick rests if you look. At the cave, load up gear again and work your way to the top.

DCA says..."difficult to protect and easy to fall off of...make the clip or take the trip..." Gear is probably a little better nowadays with micro cams/nuts.

Location

Located just a few steps to the right of Sanscrit. Look for a thin vertical crack that leads to a hueco/cave.

Protection

You will need mostly small gear and a couple of hand sized pieced for the lower crack. Rings at the top.
